We introduce a new shrinkage prior on function spaces, called the functional horseshoe prior (fHS), that encourages shrinkage towards parametric classes of functions. Unlike other shrinkage priors for parametric models, the fHS shrinkage acts on the shape of the function rather than inducing sparsity on model parameters. We study the ecacy of the proposed approach by showing an adaptive posterior concentration property on the function. We also demonstrate consistency of the model selection procedure that thresholds the shrinkage parameter of the functional horseshoe prior.We apply the fHS prior to nonparametric additive models and compare its performance with procedures based on the standard horseshoe prior and several penalized likelihood approaches. We find that the new procedure achieves smaller estimation error and more accurate model selection than other procedures in several simulated and real examples.
